AmericasMart Updates Spring Market

The March buying event at AmericasMart Atlanta will be refreshed in 2020 with a new name— Spring Mini Market— and updated programming complementing the opportunity for retailers and designers to source from 1,000-plus gift and home decor showrooms plus a curated collection of 50-plus temporaries at its March 4 to 6 staging.

The name Spring Mini Market refers to the March mid-season buying event at AmericasMart. It replaces the Atlanta Spring Gift, Home Furnishings & Holiday Market.

All 1,000-plus AmericasMart gift and home décor showrooms will be open for the Spring Mini Market. Some 75-plus new, expanded and relocated showrooms that opened during the Winter will make their spring market debuts. AmericasMart’s 700-plus gift showrooms will show a range of gift and specialty categories including seasonal/gift and outdoor living brands that will be working with buyers to complete orders before key buying deadlines.

“The update of the March market in Atlanta better reflects its unique identity in the IMC trade show calendar,” said Bob Maricich, International Market Centers CEO. “New tours and a new programming format make the market accessible and actionable for both new and loyal buyers. The new name differentiates it from our major winter and summer markets and better reflects its positioning as a more intimate buying event with access to trend-driven product and business-building education and events.”
